** The situation created by the COVID-19 outbreak is changing on a daily basis, resulting in many directives from New York State and the Office of the Governor. There is currently a pause on non-essential construction in New York State. Residence Hall renovations are not currently considered essential at this time which impacts our projects at SUNY Cortland. Due to this guidance we are not currently planning on Casey Tower being available for residency in the Fall 2020 semester.
Students in the Casey Tower Special Selection will still be afforded a special selection time on April 9th and 10th because they resided in Casey Tower during the Fall 2019 semester. Participants in the special selection will have the ability to select rooms, quads, suites, or apartments (depending on roommate group size) across campus. They will be eligible to pull in their roommate groups.**
All housing processes will take place from The Housing Director page. To access anything housing-related, complete the following steps:
To live in a double room, you will be required to choose a roommate to select a room with. If you do not know who you would like to live with, you will have an option to search for others or you can opt to be assigned by Residence Life and Housing staff.
It is possible that someone else may choose your room/suite as you are selecting. If this happens, you will receive a message that this has happened. Search for another room.
You are only able to change your assignment. Your roommate will have to make changes separately. Once your original selection time is active you will be able to complete a form indicating you want to change your room. Once complete, follow the same steps as listed in "Choose Your Room." Room changes will be permitted during RSP in the spring 2020 semester. WCA Guarantee participants can contact Residence Life and Housing to request a room change.
Pay one of two ways:
Freshmen and new transfers are required to attend. If you cannot attend the session in your residence hall, you may attend one in another hall. Informational meetings will take place during February floor meetings. Contact your hall staff for more information.
